Ladies, only you know this best.
The monthly PMS pain, brain fog, spasms, cramps, tiredness.
Thankfully, there is a solution, a natural one that I’d love to share with you today.
-Magnesium and -Brassica (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, Savoy cabbage, kohlrabi, and gai lan)
Magnesium is a macro-vitamin meaning we need loads of this to function optimally. Notice I used the word optimally. We can get by on the bare minimum with day to day activities, but as soon as your demands are beyond, you’ll hit a wall as your Magnesium levels are not up for the job. Natural sources include: spinach, pumpkin seeds, and tuna.
Brassica vegetables like broccoli and kale are beautiful examples of Mother Nature’s wisdom in helpful us clear (remove) excess estrogen. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing and that’s the case with estrogen causing inflammation in the body leading to hormone imbalances….a fancy sentence for: you get acne breakouts, gain weight, loss hair, promote cancer. But high estrogen in the first place you ask? Stress: in all its forms: -lack of sleep -too much caffeine -dehydration -mental and physical over-exertion -not enough exercise -processed foods ie take-away Brassica vegetables are your body’s way to tell the liver, hey, lets clear out this excess estrogen.
Let’s regain hormone balance.
